Live always in the fear of God . . .

  • “If we and our posterity . . . live always in the fear of God and shall respect His Commandments…we may have the highest hopes of the future fortunes of our country . . . But if we . . . neglect religious instruction and authority; violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the constitution which holds us together, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.” ~Daniel Webster 1852, Addressing the New York Historical Society
